Project description

Perlen Papier AG supplies paper for magazines and the news media. A fire in its paper recycling facility forced the firm to halt paper production. The mission of this project was to repair and renovate the plant sections and components damaged by the fire so that production could restart as soon as possible.

The requirements specified by Perlen Papier AG

Identify all components damaged by the fire, and procure and install replacements to restore full system functionality.

The following requirements were defined:

  • Perform a damage survey
  • Procure the replacement components needed
  • Install all repaired and replacement components
  • Commission the rehabilitated systems

The custom-tailored solution from Penta-Electric

By field-deploying a seasoned installation team to site, Penta-Electric succeeded in carrying out its damage survey and replacements procurement almost in parallel. This laid the foundation for the experienced, well-coordinated team to swiftly and smoothly make the necessary repairs and install the new replacement components. Our specialized and highly committed team ensured that plant rehabilitation and re-commissioning moved along quickly, allowing production to restart within a short time.

The benefits for Perlen Papier AG

  • Supply and installation of the electrical equipment from a single source

  • Reduced interfacing and short decision-making channels

The challenge for Penta-Electric

Under considerable time pressure, not only did personnel have to work in parallel on multiple differing tasks, but the components to be replaced also needed to be quickly procured and installed in a timely manner on a flexible basis. This demanded close, comprehensive communication between all participants.
